This little beast got delivered yesterday. Mike found the snow blower listed on Craigslist. He bought it off a guy up north. The guy drove 2 hours to drop if off ( for only an extra $40) Apparently the guy paid $1000 for it in December and then decided that his driveway is just too big ( he now gets it plowed). Mike paid $700 for it but split the cost with our neighbor. So we will share it with our neighbor. There is supposed to be a big snowstorm today and Mike is eager to try out his new machine.... but so far all the predicted snow is rain. Mike is a bit disappointed!
